For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/993M.html Enix decided to hop on the monster collection/battling bandwagon with Dragon Warrior Monsters, in which the main character, Terry, makes friends with various monsters from previous DW games so he can win the Starry Night Tournament and rescue his sister. Here, DonamerDragon obliterates what is normally a many hours-long game through heavy luck manipulation.

For more details, see http://tasvideos.org/71M.html Selected notes from the author: "Beat the game at Level 9. Leveling up doesn't take so long... less than 3 minutes. Avoid all the enemies that aren't useful to kill. The final boss (Dragonlord) may be a little long to beat, but it's the fastest way to get through the quest. It appears to be a David Vs Goliath fight. Topics: NES, Dragon Warrior, TAS, Tool-assisted, Speedrun, Genisto
For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/1965M.html This is the fifth game of the series originally known as Dragon Warrior in the US; it remained untranslated until a port to the DS was released in 2008, where it received the name Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. It tracks the life of our hero, Papas, over a large span of time from his adventurous childhood through tragic adolescence and a joyful marriage as he and his family fight to defeat evil.

Single-segment speed run of Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap's European version, done on December 26 2006. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: Well, this took a lot longer to get from planning to recording than I would've imagined. The thread on the SDA forum has the first post logged at Oct 11th, 2005. Over a year later, it's done. Several people require my thanks as without them I wouldn't have completed this run:...

Speed run of Final Fantasy 1 (PS1) in ~4:55. Author's comments: Hello. This is my ~4:55 video playthrough of Final Fantasy 1 on the PS1. The version played is the Japanese version, mainly because it is the one I am used to (control-wise) and that this version does not have that "dancing cursor" problem (where the cursor seems to move on its own while the player is choosing an option, resulting in going to an undesired command) that the US version has in the game. The game is... Topics: PlayStation, Final Fantasy
Speed run of Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom, done on May 18 2007. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: Thanks go to Frezy_man for being the first person to speedrun this game. I used many of his strategies. I have a feeling that he might beat my run at some point in the future. * Stage One With the fury of a thousand dragons empowering him, Ryu begins his quest to kill Irene's murderer and eradicate evil...

* Recorded with FCEUX 2.1.3 (started with 2.1.2), old PPU * Fastest time * Luck manipulation I started working on this right after finishing Dragon Warrior, as this game's discussion thread had just been revived about improving the published run from 2006. This was another of my old favorite games, and it seems I was still in the mood for some heavy luck manipulation, so I decided to see what I could do ... 2 months and a cancelled submission later, I've improved the published run by 25:21...

Speed run of Dragon Quest 3 with a solo Hero in ~9:00. Author's comments: Hello. This is a solo Hero playthrough of Dragon Quest 3 for the Super Famicom. It's not a "as fast as I can"-type run, more of a "completionist" one in which I tried to get all items found on the ground and in chests, and I went through all of the dungeons in the game as well. The playtime of the video up until the game is beaten appears to be about 9:08:29, with the reset/startup time... Topics: Super Nintendo, Dragon Quest
Speed run of Tomb Raider 2 for PC in 19 segments completed on September 27 2005. Author's comments: Since I did Tomb Raider 3, I decided I may as well do Tomb Raider 2 as well. My main worry was actually the giant spider section in the Temple of Xian, but after some "training" I was able to do it without even skipping a beat, however I then found out I could completely bypass it anyway! I also thought it would be much harder because there are so many enemies, after a few levels though... Topic: Tomb Raider
Single-segment speed run of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, done on October 8 2006. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: Here it is, my first ever speedrun. Zelda 2 completed with no Up+A and no deaths. I'll second tmont's sentiments on doing this type of Zelda 2 run: if you want to enjoy this game, don't play it like this. It was hard as hell, and took me about 4 months from the initial training stages to get this... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Legend of Zelda: Zelda 2, Single-segment, NES
Speed run of Enclave's Dark side on easy difficulty in 13 segments appended to one file, completed on February 28 2007. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: There are some things I have to talk about before you begin watching. These you can find in the Commentary of the Light Run . I thought its useless when I repeat them, so I skip them this time. I only want to give out the thanks, first to the great SDA - Team and...

Hello. When I first requested suggestions for my summer project of playing through Final Fantasy 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, X-2, 12 and then the Dragon Quest games over the summer at a forum I go to ( http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=100904 ), there were a couple of video requests for particular parts of the game this group of videos is for, the remake of Dragon Quest 4 for the PS1. The game never was released outside of Japan/Asia, and a number of people were pretty dismayed... favoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topic: PlayStation
